I have been working at Respawn Entertainment full-time (More than 5 years)
The crew treats you like family.
Every single employee is a badass, there is tons of freedom because everyone just expects and trusts you will get your work done so no one is looking over your shoulder.
Tons of creative freedom and control over your work, you always have the ability to express your thoughts and feelings on the project without fear of being neglected or punished for honest criticism.
Just the coolest place to grow and learn and become and epic level game developer
Design team has a bad habit of not ever fully committing to a decision. This makes great games in the end but the artists further down the pipeline suffer greatly and were still trying to get designers to understand how much harder we have to work because of it.
Advice to Management
Don’t let the amazing independent culture of the studio die. Long live Respawn.
I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Respawn Entertainment in April 2016.
Applied Online by sending an email. Got a response from Kristin after 2 days were she sent me a test of 9 questions to do in about 1 week. I sent it after 6 days. One week later I got a response saying they wouldn't move on.
